GID 92 & 93: Letterpress Printing


COURSE INFORMATION

Collaborative Project Inspiration

Many of you know me for my interest in creative collaboration. I would like one of our shared efforts to focus on food & tastes of your homeland, childhood or current cultural practices. Begin thinking about what this means to you. There is a local exhibition venue that is interested in our work for a January exhibition. The exhibition curator suggests two books for inspiration:  Stealing Buddah's Dinner and Book of Unknown Americans. More on this when we meet.
